COVID-19 restrictions for international travel to Jamaica

International visitors to Jamaica should always take their health, vaccine status, and the risk of getting COVID-19 into consideration when visiting the island. Travel restrictions are subject to change without notice, and additional restrictions may be imposed by the Jamaican government, even during your stay. That said, iVisa always aims to give you the most up-to-date information.

Travel-related quarantine measures in Jamaica

The Jamaica quarantine requirement during COVID-19 upon entry is no longer in effect. You do not have to undergo an isolation period at a government facility or at home when arriving in the country. This COVID-19 travel advisory applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors to the country.

Testing and vaccination requirements in Jamaica

Vaccine passports, PCR tests or antigen tests are no longer required to enter Jamaica. There is no need to show a negative COVID-19 test result. If any visitor from a foreign country tests positive for COVID-19 during their trip, they are advised to stay at home or at their accommodation. This isolation period ends after 10 days. If symptoms persist, please see a medical officer.

Fill out the Jamaica C5 form

As of March, air passengers do not have to fill out the Jamaica Travel Authorization Form anymore. This form was put in place by the health department of the Jamaican government, to stay informed about the health status of visitors to the country and disease control of COVID-19.

Instead, the Jamaica C5 form has replaced this former health declaration. It is a digital version of the immigration/customs declaration of all travelers (including children and transiting passengers) from other countries must complete before arrival. By submitting your information online, you’ll help the government speed up the customs process on arrival. Without this travel document, you will be denied entry.

Please note that this form is not a visa, and you should still go through the correct procedures to obtain one if applicable to your nationality.

How to complete the C5 form online

It only takes a few minutes to complete the C5 form application with iVisa. All you need are your personal details, passport information, a valid email address, and a credit or debit card. In order to submit the form, you must have a confirmed flight ticket. Simply follow the instructions:

  • Step 1: Carefully read the information and fill out the form. Choose the processing time that suits you best.
  • Step 2: Double-check all your information and pay the iVisa service fee (see below for fee information).
  • Step 3: Submit your application by attaching any necessary documents.

Make sure all information is complete, and all spelling is double-checked. The information may be difficult to change if you've already submitted the online form. When you receive your completed C5 form, please print it and carry both a physical and electronic copy to show to immigration officers when you arrive in Jamaica.

Costs and processing options to get the Jamaica C5 form

The form is free of charge, however, iVisa does charge a small service fee. The processing time and prices depend on your budget and needs. The options are:

  • Standard Processing Time: This option will take 24 hours to process your C5 form and the amount charged will be USD $58.99.
  • Rush Processing Time: This option will take around 4 hours for the form to get processed, and the amount charged will be USD $107.99.
  • Super Rush Processing Time: This option will take only 30 minutes and is perfect for those in a rush. The amount charged for this is USD $181.99.

Other travel requirements and visas for Jamaica

For entry into Jamaica from your origin country, check if you need a visa or if there are any other requirements or forms required. In some cases, you may need a visa in addition to the C5 form.

A Jamaican visa can be obtained through the Jamaican embassy in your country of residence. It’s possible to check on other internet sites, for example, of the Jamaican government, if you’re eligible for a visa. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about obtaining a visa for Jamaica at this time.
